Late Fall Music Roundup

Here's another bunch of playlists from my weekly radio show, Beef Jerky Time. A few comments:

The Tutankamon and Fruit Bats songs in the 11/11 show are both so Allman Brothers Band!

I'm happy Thao with the Get Down Stay Down have a new album out ("Know Better Learn Faster"). Thao et al. were a memorable part of my 2008.

Fanfarlo and also Ra Ra Riot are on deck for becoming my next obsessions. What I've heard so far is great great stuff and I want more. Please leave a comment if you know more about these 2! (If you're reading this before Christmas '09, go check out Fanfarlo's Advent Calendar on their homepage!)

OMG, new stuff from Yeasayer?! I am still so in love with their song "2080" from 2+ years ago.

I am sorry Alela Diane, but a song called "Pieces of String" will only ever remind me of Monty Python.

The 11/18 show was largely picked by my iTunes. It kept coming up with good stuff and I kept writing it down. I mean, Beck! It's been so long!

I'm glad I managed to get one album from each year of the '00s in the "Albums of the Naughties" show (12/2). I didn't plan it that way. It just worked out. (Here's my "official list" of 00s albums.)
